Hi Stuart and Philip -

That's great. I just added a third one...

Signs written with BOTH the beginning and ending position, do not  
need the Hollow Dot for Opening the fingers...

The beginning and ending positions already show the opening without  
the dot...position to position...

The dots were invented so we could eliminate one of the two positions...
